Top diplomats from 17 countries tour Palestinian communities Israel is trying to expel from South Hebron Hills
Representatives of 17 countries, EU members as well as other countries, are currently visiting Palestinian communities in the South Hebron Hills, whose residents Israel is seeking to expel. Since 2000 the residents have been waging a legal struggle in Israel's High Court of Justice. Before the last hearing, the Akevot Institute revealed a document proving what was already clear: Israel had declared the area a firing zone to facilitate the expulsion of its residents. The judges ignored that information and the residents are currently awaiting their ruling.
